on the individual market. now, the last point i would make, before -- >> jim: 2 minutes is up. >> no. i had 5 seconds before you interrupted me -- was...: [chuckles] >> the irony is that we have seen this model work really well in massachusetts. because governor romney did a good thing, working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model and as a consequence people are covered there. it hasn't destroyed jobs. and as a consequence, we now have a system in which we have the opportunity to start bringing down costs as opposed to just leaving millions out in the cold. >> jim: your five seconds went away a long time ago. governor, tell the president directly why you think what he just said is wrong about obamacare. >> diwith my first statement. but i will go on. >> please, elaborate. >> exactly right. first of all, i like the way we did it in massachusetts. i like the fact that in my state, we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what i did instead was to push through a plan without a single republican vote. as a matter of fact when massa

to "hardball." now to the "sideshow." in wednesday's debate you saw romney pushing moderator jim lehrer around pretty much at will. eventually president obama joined in. but here is a flashback of the romney/lehrer face-off from jimmy fallon. >> it's my priority to repeal obama -- >> okay, now, governor romney you are well over the two-minute allotted -- >> jim, i still have 30 seconds here on -- >> if -- >> jim, jim -- just politely going to hush you up a bit. >> going to keep you. >> na, na, na. >> respect the governor -- >> jim, do us all a favor and just -- i think it's a little weird that you're here still. you can just leave and do whatever you want. >> no, i'm the moderator here. >> jim -- >> hold on now. >> i'm going to have to ask you to step down, okay? ja, ja, ja. no. >> that's just a noise. >> jim, jim, jim, would you shut the [ bleep ] up. >> that was a facsimile i think. more from the debate aftermath. the big bird nonsense continues. how did the former gop candidates feel about the mitt romney pledge to stop funding for pbs if elected president? first, rick santorum last night o
game, and you cannot blame anybody, the moderator, jim lehrer, how he handled it, the remarks of romney. fair warning is fair play. he knew what kind of debater romney was. all he had to do was look at the videotapes from florida, and he did a lot of things wrong, the optics were wrong, looking down, he did not have the responses he should of had. he let romney get away with sayi things, like this comment on medicare, which was not true. >> he never mentioned the opportunity that he had in the last few weeks, the 47% thing. those are running across the country in ads. the president did not mention it once. >> mitt romney told shawn hammett the last night that that was a bad mistake, that 47% thing. he says he was sorry. >> i never said this on television, but nina is right. she stumbled on the truth when she said that obama is not a good debater. it is not that obama was off his game, that is his game. if he does not have a prompter, he is not good. you see it in his press conferences where he does not have a prompter. he has never been good at conferences. he rambles. the press has bee

and eliminate a number of perhaps and consolidate a number of others. i think with jim lehrer there from pbs, he made the point from a joking reference. look, you have to borrow money from china to pay for these programs, is it worth it? that's the test that should be applied if we impose it on future generations. big bird, i can tell you, as the father of three children grown now, but any father who's gone to a toy store knows that big bird is a pretty commercially successful entity and whether or not we should be subsidizing it, and you can cite, oh, it's not that big a percentage of the budget, that's true, but every penny that you raise as a potential cut seems to be sacred with this administration and you can't cut it, and they demagogue it, and i think the american people understand this is a big election and a big choice. >> let's talk -- >> you have to make some tough decisions and have to find some things where it's not worth borrowing money and imposing debt on future generations, big bird would be pretty successful, i suspect, without a government federal subsidy and all that debt. >>
sitting on the panel that year, that very year. jim lehrer's book on the debate includes the panelists, including you discussed bernie's question in the greenroom and there was concern among your group about asking that question. what was the feeling then? >> the feeling was, you saw three women, ann compton, margaret warner, myself and bernie. bernie had one question to ask as the moderator and we each got two and the format was tight and controlled and had a feeling we were sharing notes because we cannot didn't want to repeat each other because there would be no opportunity to follow up. this is what he said he would ask. think back, 1988, people didn't can those questions and we looked coiled and maybe it's gender, do you really want to ask that about kitty dukakis and bring her in the campaign? he said yes. jim lehrer reports it correctly, we said do you really want to do that and he pushed back independently -- >> you know how bernard is. >> the thought is that's the only thing anybody remembered. i asked about the budget and about the nuclear triad and bernie asked the question
to tell you the person i felt sorry for was not big bird, it was jim lehrer. mitt romney was like, you are done. seriously, he put the man out of a job in front of 60 million people. big bird is not real. jim lehrer is a real guy. i know one person who is voting for barack obama. at least there's one, his name is jim lehrer. >> let's move on. kanye west and kim kardashian. apparently kim kardashian made a comment this week she has never been more in love than she is with kanye. she is still married to someone whose name isn't kanye. >> she is in it love with being in love. every guy is the one. she goes from one to the other and it's always wedding bells and can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him until she doesn't want to spend the rest of her life with him. >> she said she can't see herself with anyone else. i have news for you, kim, we can. >> and, also, we have. >> unfortunately, we're out of time. we can't talk about the hulk hogan sex tape. thank goodness. >> nobody is more upset than this guy. >> i know you wanted to go there, didn't you. >> one man, one woman. >> chuck

for the next debate. it's a must-win state to capture the white house. jim acosta is traveling with romney for us. >> reporter: fred, mitt romney is wrapping up a three-day campaign sweep through florida. the part was in debate prep and this is in port st. lucie, florida in front of an estimated crowd of 12,000 people. of course, over the last couple of days we heard mitt romney continue this victory lap after what was widely perceived to be a big victory in that first presidential debate. earlier this morning on the sunday talk shows, top obama campaign strategists went after mitt romney accusing him of making false statements. today in port st. lucie he fired about. >> you heard his answers or nonanswers. of course days later we hear his excuses, and next january we'll be watching him leave the wlous for the last time. >> reporter: next romney heads to virginia for a major foreign policy speech at the virginian military institute. after that the gop nominee will campaign in more critical battleground states like ohio and iowa. fred. >> thanks so much, jim. >>> for both presidential campa
said i was going to be tougher than jim lehrer and i'm going to be. let's discuss a big issue that never came up in the debate and that is the fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year, sequestration it is called unless the president and congress work out a deal. under what is called the warren act employers and this is not just federal employers, all companies must tell workers 60 days in it advance of mass layoffs but ten days ago the obama administration told companies with federal contracts to ignore the law, don't notify the workers of the coming layoffs as part of the fiscal sequestration and it would pick up the lawsuits resulting. what is wrong with that? >> another example of this administration ignoring or skirting the law to help the president's reelection chances. here is where we are. sequestration is going to be the law in january. we haven't seen the leadership from the president on this. he is worried because the companies know they have to lay people off and this they told congress this. omb says you don't have to comply with the law and the worst part is tha
said idle be tougher than jim lehrer and i'm going to be. what didn't come up in the debate is the fiscal cliff of tax increases come at the end of the year, sequestration as it is called, unless the president and congress work out a deal. under what is act, employers, this is not just federal employers, all companies, must tell workers, 60 days in advance, over mass layoffs, but ten days ago, the obama administration told companies with federal contracts to ignore the law, don't notifier workers of these coming layoffs, as part of the fiscal cliff, sequestration, and, it would pick up the legal costs from any losses. senator ayotte, what is wrong with that. >> it is quite shocking, chris, but it is another example of this administration ignoring or skirting the law, to help the president's re-election chances. because, here's where we are. sequestration is going to be the law in january, if we haven't seen the leadership on the president on this, and, he is worried because the companies know they'll have to lay people off and they've told congress this and, omb comes out wi
to the taxpayer money because of big bird, all his friends like elmo and jim lehrer. the president should be paying attention to the count to help him with the numbers, and the numbers are troubling. on a day in which the congressional budget office announced the 2012 budget deficit came in at $11 trillion for a fourth straight year, turns out our out of control spending includes roughly $450 million given every year to the corporation for public broadcasting, $8 million of that going to, that's right, sesame workshop and big bird. it appears easy to dismiss millions of dollars when the government faces trillion of dollars in debt. the left may be cute with a call to end funding for public broadcasting, but here's the homework the left should have done before they and president obama began their reflective aattacks. they are $388 million in assets now. in merchandise sales alone, it brought in $45 million, five times what it received in government grants. that little cute sesame workshop turns out to be a moneymaker producing hundreds of millions of dollars. we take all of that up tonight
to hire teachers. >> that's right. as many as it takes. >> governor romney, your response. >> well, jim, when it comes to jobs, president obama prefers what i call a trickledown government solution. now, my plan is different. it involves 41 basic elements, six of reversals of position and three outright lice. in bummer on number one, get us energy independent, number two, open up more trade, especially with latin america. >> the anniversary gift, i can't believe i forgot the anniversary gift. this is bad. this is very bad. >> i want my taxes to go to people who need help. >> and i am sorry that you don't want to spend your hard earned tax money on that $130 million but let me say this to you welcome to the [ bleep ] club. >> we as the country are only as strong as the weakest amongst us. as the new testament tells us the poor will always be with us. >> wait, wait, wait. you're telling me. >> you're telling me not to take care of them but to bring the poor and those in need back into more -- >> this is an outrage. this is a total outrage. this is a -- this man has offended -- this man ov

. still, parents were quick to speak out. >> the backing is there, you know. jim mcmahon just came out and said he suffers from dementia, so there is a fear. >> if you're going to stop football, you better stop hockey. >> reporter: symptoms are often subtle and easily missed. among children and adolescents, emergency room visits for sports-related brain injuries, including concussions, have gone up 60% in ten years. ask for boys, the rates are highest in football. >> from the nfl all wait down to pop warner youth football, unprecedented steps have been taken the last several years to make the game safer. >> reporter: more than half of the states in america, including new hampshire, have concussion laws to protect student athletes. at eastern tech in maryland, players take brain function tests to determine if and when they can play after an injury. >> it will tell me how severe my injury is, it will tell me how long i have to get back. >> reporter: banning football altogether may be extreme, but butler's proposal has triggered a passionate debate, forcing the country to take a different
in question who was really going to win the debate and then jim lehrer said let's turn to the second session on the debt. the first thing he said was the issue of the debt and deficit is not just an issue of money it is an issue of morality. immoral to leave the debt to our children and grandchildren and i thought it was a strong statement and elevated the romney campaign above a kind of we can do a little better for your pocketbook next week than president obama can and put it in a bigger concept and elevated the race into who is the more are responsible steward of this country's finances and well being for the next generation. i thought it was a very important moment for mitt romney. >> geraldo: stand but youle join our all-star panel in a moment. first, news on fast and furious, folks. the botched atf gun running operation and news that hasn't been fully digested by the mainstream media. we know that one of the walked guns was used to kill agent brian terry but it took the spanish language news network to reveal that the walked guns were also used if you recall the horrific 2010 massacre
from missouri. let's go to the phones and get the callers involved. this is jim in waterbury, connecticut. good morning. go ahead. caller: linda mcmahon it said that chris murphy was not there in congress 90% of the time to make votes on issues. is that a fair accusation? is that just sort of how congress works that -- works now? guest: beat -- host: before we let you go, what is it like there in connecticut now? guest: last time she really bombarded you. it is a pretty bad race, a lot of mudslinging. host: ken rudin? guest: this is a state that they have no business being competitive in. the former chief executive of the world wrestling federation, linda mcmahon, spent $50 million in a big republican year and lost still by 12 points. she got some sort of complete makeover this year? or she is warm and folksy? she is taking chris murphy as someone who is out of touch. i still think that he has a slight lead, but the polls show them as dead even. democrats should definitely worry. this is the one where joe lieberman is retiring. host: new york, trevor, republican. caller: good
to e.d. hill, are you still here? he couldn't get a word in he think-wise. >> almost like jim lehrer. >> it was entertaining, we'll he show you more of that coming up in the show. >> a leading security official at the u.s. consulate in libya order today testify at wednesday's house oversight committee hearing. that hearing designed to investigate the deadly terrorist attack that killed four, including our ambassador. >> peter: peter doocy, what can you tell us about lt. colonel amy wood. >> the head of the 16 member special forces team in charge of keeping u.s. personal and he's a green beret from the u.s. national guard and subpoenaed to appear in front of congress at a hearing about the deadly 9/11 raid at at consulate in benghazi, that killed u.s. ambassador stevens, and sean smith, glenn doherty and tyrone woods. we don't have a complete list, but we have an information what mr. wood will say. cbs it reporting that he met with ambassador stevens just about every day between february when his mobile security deployment team until august when he left just about a month before the d
us now is a big supporter of pulpit freedom sunday, jim garlow senior pastor of skyline weslyan church in san diego. what do you plan on saying today? i'm just curious. to the congregation there. >> i'm going to walk through the various biblical issues in this year's election. i'll talk about candidates that are in support of those various biblical issues and candidates that in opposition to them and urge those in the congregation to vote for those who come mostly in compliance with biblical principles. >> will you be endorsing a specific candidate today as well? >> i probably will. church does not -- the church cannot vote, but i as a pastor did not surrender my freedom of speech and freedom of religion once i was ordained to be a pastor, so i very likely will be announcing who i will be voting for on a number of different elections, state, local, and federal as well. >> are you willing then to lose your tax exempt status? i'm curious why you would speak this way in your church as opposed to maybe outside your church when that wouldn't be such a risk? >> well, i would speak in
in the carter administration, jim schlesinger, in an open letter to time magazine asked governor dukakis, "are you viscerally anti- military?" jim schlesinger never got an answer. and the reason he did is because the governor of massachusetts doesn't want to answer former secretary jim schlesinger on that very important question. >> tom, a last question for senator quayle. >> senator quayle, all of us in our lifetime encounter an experience that helps shapes our adult philosophy in some form or another. could you describe for this audience tonight what experience you may have had, and how it shaped our political philosophy? >> there are a lot of experiences that i've had that have shaped my adult philosophy, but the one that i keep coming back to time and time again and i talk about it at commencement addresses, i talk about it in the high schools. i talk about it when i visit the job training centers. and it's the advice that my maternal grandmother, martha pulliam, who's 97 years old. we are a modern day, four generation family. the advice that she gave me when i was growing up is advice tha
plans to prevent this insanity. >> it sort of came up once when jim lehrer reminded them and said, raise your hand if you'll take a deal for one dollar in tax increases you'll take $10 in spending cuts. neither one of them wanted to take that deal. neither wants to approach this because no one wants to say if i cut a real deal, i will cut the programs you love. governor romney knows the revenue question will be back on the table in some form. senator nunn has been gone from the town for a while and he's probably grateful for that. he used to serve in what they call the world's most deliberative body. not so much anymore. >>> coming up, winston churchill once said, you can always count on americans to do the right thing after they've tried everything else. i'll ask senator nunn why he's optimistic this federal congress can come together ask come up with something he just suggested, the condition being a soft landing, not a hard, dangerous landing that could send us into a recession. that's coming up next on "your money." overmany discounts to thine customers!

of our history which imposed specific burdens on members of our society. slavery, racism, jim crowe. they will had impacts. lbj in the '60s is saying how do we move forward? you can't let the shackles down and think we have equality. you have to work to make equality. that's where the concept was rooted initially. >> this notion though of a reparation or repair tiff as foekt affirmative action goes away in michigan. the michigan cases which are ultimately up for debate now, tell us about those. >> absolutely. there are two rationales under the constitution, one is the immediate -- the other one is the diversity rationale. there's been a movement away from the remedial rationale towards the diversity rationale. harvard law professor says it's a better move because it makes people, minority groups, look like they are burying gifts rather than grievances which this language that i love. like she does, i feel like we've moved too far from the remedial aspiration. but you're exactly right. once we get to the michigan case, 2003 case we have the diversity rationale being asserted by the u
to play about what he had to say about the battle over funding pbs. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs and stop other things. i like pbs and love big bird and actually like you, too. i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. >> shannon: jijim lehrer did nt look happy about the possibility of funding cut. big bird has been out talking about this. pbs released this statement saying as a supporter of education governor romney should be a supporter of public education yet he he is willing to wipe out services that reach the vast majority of americans. we know big bird was one of the big twitter hash tags and top ecktopics that night. is this a distraction now, this that we are having to talk about the battle over funding pbs. >> absolutely. a false choice as well. look at the particular. governor romney made it clear. we have $16 trillion worth of debt. 5'" additional trillion since this president has been in office. we are borrowing that money largely from china. and so you look at programs and as governor romney outline
diminish himself? >> that is why he didn't do it the other night, he was waiting for jim lehrer to ask the tough questions. >> i think high lost his game and nerve in that debate. >>gregg: he will bring up the next time they talk about domestic policy, the 47 percent remark. >> what romney did was smart the he acknowledged we all make mistakes. i misspoke, it happens, it takes it off the table for most. not everyone. but it was the right thing to do going on sean hannity. >>gregg: and bain capital, going office that does it resonate? >> this is an audience of people who will ask the question. they do not like negative campaigning. if the president goes this way i am telling you, if i were romney, this is a dream if you do it right. >>gregg: he could pick up votes, if he hangs out with stacey keebler. >> she may not be hanging out much longer with george clooney. >>gregg: you guys have yankee ties on, right? you were there monday night? you are the good luck charm. >> we got them in the playoffs and we need to get them in the series. >>gregg: thanks so you. more our campaign insiders ev

"washington journal" live at 7:00 a.m. eastern on c-span. >> one of the things i've heard from a number of companies is that the sec has sometimes nonce had much alacrity with the respect to issues that are in the commission or delaying action on other issues. i wanted to think about different ways the commission could speed up its processes. i think that one of the key things the commission can and should do is unable more dynamic industry, get more spectrum into the commercial marketplace. there been a number of different proposals on the table. i have taken and all of the above approach. i tried to think of different ways that the sec could remove barriers to infrastructure investment. some studies have estimated for every billion dollars at the private sector spent a fiber deployment, 20,000 new jobs be created. from a regulatory perspective, my view is that our goal should be to
3rd. jim lehrer firing back at the critics who said he let the debate get out of hand. telling politico, i don't consider that being passive, i consider it being effective. it's not my job to control the conversation. if the candidates give me resistance and i let them talk, to me that's being an active moderator, not passive. meanwhile the internet continues to be abuzz about what exactly mitt romney put on the podium at the debate? was it a cheat sheet of talking points, perhaps? the campaign confirming -- it was a handkerchief to keep the powder dry. that's not stopping conspiracy theorists. they're calling it hanky-gate. president obama with an unbelievable record. >>> and mitt romney debuting the softer side, will it make him more likable to the viewers still on the fence? >> the people of california want me to be their governor. and i will do that and nothing else. >> and a little bit later, he changed california politics in a way no one ever thought he could. we'll flash back to see how the austrian bodybuilder turned governator, how it all happened.
